How Much CBD Oil Should I Give My Dog?

Basics: CBD dosage for dogs and cats rule of thumb

Basic dosing rule for cats and dogs: 1-5 mg for every 10 pounds of body weight. To control pain, give every 8 hours or as needed. For other uses, give once or twice a day.

CBD optimal dosing for my pet

Full spectrum CBD dosing is mostly determined by your pet’s weight, but there are other factors that come into play as well!

First is timing. You should give your pet his dose of full spectrum hemp 30 min to an hour before achieving desired results.

It can sometimes take effect in as little as 15 min or as long as 1:30 min. 

This is the case when treating any kind of anxiety such as separation anxiety, car or plane anxiety, guests coming over, going to the dog park, loud noises such as fireworks or thunder, going to the groomers, dental cleanings, vet visits, play dates ect..

When it comes to: arthritis, appetite inducement, general pain or inflammation, allergies and tremors.. timing is not an issue and you should give your pet his daily dose, half in the morning and half at night. Results here can be seen in as soon as 2 days!

For specific skin issues such as eczema, psoriasis and rashes you should rub the CBD oil directly on your pet's skin twice daily for optimal results. 

Full spectrum CBD dosing recommendations

Remember that every pet is different and that our dosing suggestions are just that... suggestions! Although we can flaunt them a little since we have had high success rates following them! 

We recommend starting your pet on our suggested dosage below and following it for 5 days or 5 occasions. If no change appears to be happening try increasing the dose by one treat or one dropper full. 

Another observation we have come across is that for anxiety related issues, our Full spectrum CBD oil seems to work best and for arthritis and pain, the treats seem to do the trick. This is not to say that our customers haven't seen anxiety relief with our treats, every pet is different and one product may work better than another for certain issues. If you would like to try both, we have a great combo pack deal!

Full spectrum CBD oil and treats for pets reviews

Case 1

Dog name: Simmy Age: 14 weight: 65-70lbs Condition: arthritis, low energy levels, difficulty moving around

Simmy started taking two of our treats in the morning as soon as she would wake up and two at night right before bed. By the third day her owners said she was running on her walks! they had never seen her so happy and full of energy in YEARS! they also noticed that she seemed less lethargic and less bothered by her joint pain! 


Case 2

Dog name: Charlie Age: 1.5 years old Weight: 7 lbs Condition: separation anxiety 

Charlie would cry and cry when his mom would leave him alone at home and would constantly follow her around when she was home. Charlie started out by receiving half a dose of our hemp oil and saw great improvement when he was left home alone! then his mom decided to try one full serving and was blown away by the results! Charlie stopped crying all together when he was left alone for 3 hours!! and when she was home he didn't follow her to another room when he was left alone!

Case 3

Dog name: Chewie Age: Weight: 9.5 lbs Condition: Allergies

Chewie has flare ups of allergies that make him scratch and lick obsessively. he started taking 1 full dropper of our cod oil each night before bed. After a week and a half, his owner noticed a big difference in his allergies and said that he would barely lick or scratch any more!
